Always my favourite baby name lists.

The names I love but are too out there (even for me who's child has an unranked name) to use:

Boys:
Nemo
Zeus
Rubeus
Sherlock
Tokyo
Woody

Girls:
Bambi
Dolly
Birdie
Baby
Queenie
Pepper

Major guilty pleasure names BlushBlush my DP barely let me finish the sentence when suggesting these ones although I wouldn't have been brave enough to use them anyway 😂

I love the name Woody. When we were choosing makes we struggled because my other half wanted traditional whereas I wanted something a bit quirky. I like River, Jacobi and Zachaeus.

Ophelia! But if I have another girl I’m going to push for it 😂 even as a middle name would feel like a victory.

I also like Jasper for a boy but DP is very much in the “top 5” names in terms of taste so anything vaguely unique and he panics!

Love these threads as DD's name often appears once!

Seraphina
Persephone

Inego

These were all favourites of mine for my last child and people thought they were very 'brave'. I still love them.

Persephone and Torquil - we're not posh enough.

Loic - we're not French enough (I really love the sound of this name Low-ick in my accent Loo-week in a French one)

Ike - because its the baby from South Park and thats where I got I from and that's why I like it!

KrissKross you have AWESOME taste in names. That reads like my name list and my daughter's name is on there.

Love Isambard beyond reason!

Boudicca- you would have to be brave to carry it off.

Most of my girls list was not approved Persephone was on there.

I also like Venita which is too much like Vianetta (which would also be a good name if it wasn’t and ice cream).
